Good luck on your quest!
IMC these events have the penalties apply for all time & these are mitigated by
I like Chemlak's Spanish inquisition example - & people do have a very long
As Spatula posted, if you go the way Farvin (sorry Farvin) is postulating, then
This system is a simplification... That's all it is. If you want to make life
Build some stuff to mitigate the penalties & then build a bridge...
When you get there - a kingdom building sheet.

One must also bear in mind that dragons often assume humanoid form & walk amoungst us...
+1 to RuyanVe's comment though... 'You encounter a caravan of refugees
Tent city sounds like a cool place to have a chase scene...could be
You could also keep playing up the bandit theme & have a bandit attack
Read ahead into the next book, find something/someone you want to
Yeah - depends how you want to play it, so up to you in the end...
Other than that - Jhod won't steal any of the PC's thunder later on, so does he
Besides that - he doesn't need to be played the same way as the PC - they could
My group is Lvl 10 & we've been doing it this way since day one...
BECAUSE KM is so sandboxy - more so than any other AP, you can't really count
I guess what I'm saying is look at how many of the encounters in each book that
This also allows you to throw in all sorts of extra stuff. We've been playing
Why don't you treat Davik as a 'Haunt'?
Well, you could ask for me to finish all the Legendary Games stuff...
+1 redcelt...& a big ditto here...
Dude, we don't need to when you're such a hard task master on yourself!
This from James Jacobs: -
Pitax's claims on its nation are pretty spurious—they actually claim to control all of the Stolen Lands west of Hooktongue Slough, but they don't really have an organized patrol route and the city certainly doesn't give out much support to anyone who wants to do stuff like live or work in that region.
The region that Pitax can legitimately claim as its own, though pretty much ammounts to the bottom two rows of hexes on page 22, with the exception of any hexes with forest in them and the addition of the hexes containing areas K and L.
"why would a patch of radishes boost the production of a sawmill?"
Have you tasted those moon radishes?Sooooooo woody on the palate! (Don't know why Oleg likes them so much...)
For Drelev (where my PCs have just reached), I've told them that Drelev currently
Pitax - not there yet, but I saw a recent(ish) discussion on these boards about
That said, the other thing to remember is that by the time they take over/conquer
Just f.y.i I used your stats in my sheet I'm running for my players & dittoresults...except for the summary tab, which was even less populated than yours
seems to have been. i.e. speed was also blank.
Chemlak, How's your tres cool life going? & any comments on this?
(I'm in the same boat - haven't got to armies yet...but nearly there...
Everything Chemlak said +1.
My own group wouldn't have made it through the 1st few years if I'd imposed
I'd also say that - just because your DM had a hard time of it when the rules
Yes, the 1st rules were broken in that manner. The new ones... well, they don't
My player's kingdom is up to about a decade (I think -somewhere around there
Heh - kinda the same, except that none of the kingdom's horse vendors will 'give'horses anymore, as the PCs have a habit of losing all or most of the ones
they're given... ;-p
I'd love to use those but I need to translate the text into Portuguese for my group. If any of the artists could provide a textless version of their art I'd be tremendously grateful.
If that doesn't work, I'd suggest doing something I do occasionally.
Give the book - as written - to your group, have it be written in a language
Alternatively, you could print out the book as written, then create some 'paste
Hope you do find something that works though - they are cool efforts by different

You could swap out the Candlemere threat as written for a pirate base...?
Additionally, you're likely to see at least one fey gatecrasher. These-days, my go-to menacing fey is a custom job named Sagroc the Ugly. He's an advanced Bogeyman with the Agile mythic template. I haven't completely decided on this bugger's agenda, but he loves nothing more than fear, and spreading fear. And (now that I think about it) what's better for spreading fear than gate-crashing a noble wedding?
My 'go to' for this type of interaction is a Spring-Heel Jack.Not the one presented in prd or pfsrd, but one in Alluria's - 'Clans of the
He's a medium sized (instead of small), CN (instead of CE) Fey fancy boy.
I play him a lot like Flashheart from Blackadder
Cool Mr Grogg.

This is incorrect, each book has a small section that covers some of the geographic features.
My bad - I was sure I'd read someone comparing them to the Mississippi somewherein the boards.
Plus, admittedly, I was looking at their freaking size on the maps - they
certainly aren't drawn little.
However, even then, this doesn't preclude smaller rivers than the main ones.
In short - yes, I'd say you're reading it wrong. From 2 hexes below Oleg's
However - that said - feel free to make it swamp. That would lend a whole new
As for the 'river' question, there are other posts on these hallowed boards
As for the rules... Depends on which version you're working with. If it's the

The main thing to remember there is that the rivers shown on the AP maps are
This means that all of the smaller rivers are not shown on the map, so there's

The whole problem I have is tying the PCs to ANYTHING noble...
Well, you could start them all out as the Aristocrat NPC class & they can thenspecialise into whatever PC class they want...
If you have 6-8 players, then even they should breeze through most things they
meet until they get their 1st PC class level.
This would get some sort of buy in to the politics back home, or at least
Good suggestions above, but also...
1. Neither weapon has to be the type of weapon listed. AP writers have also
2. I can see Ovinrbaane as LN - i.e. the law as he sees it, & neutral as to
3. Briar - yeah, a bit harder on the alignment front, but as a different weapon
You know your players best. It might be fun to 'make them' take a Feat to use a
I would definitely include Chemlak's kingdom building spreadsheet in the list of recommended e-tools. Our group would have skipped the mechanics of kingdom building entirely if we did not have this useful tool to use. Someone else will have to link since I am at work, but it has been updated quite a few times, including adding Ultimate Rulership options.
...and did a Pathfinder remake of old AD&D Battlesystem to handle the combat.
Hiya mellowgoth, any chance of sharing please?I've been trying to think of what I can substitute, & have found nothing I like thus far... :)
1) Can Samurai take Cavalier Archetypes? I assume yes because the class abilities are all named the same thing but I haven't been able to find anything official.
If I were your DM, I'd say no.The Samurai is a separate class to the Cavalier - & yes some of their abilities
go by the same names...but then, so do many, many classes abilities.
Want an archetype - choose a Samurai one... or play a Cavalier...
As Aestereal said basically.
The Iron Wraiths are mentioned in book one, but pretty much not after...
However, what your question does answer for most of the DMs who have run/are
In order to do the AP the most justice, you should read all of the books ahead,
